Episode 2 – Living The Dream.

What do a chef, a Couta Boat sailor and a comedian have in common? They’re all living the dream! This week our podcast host Mark Klemens shoots the breeze with SSCBC head chef Bernard McCarthy, couta boat sailor Nigel Abbott and comedian, podcast host and TV presenter Hamish Blake.

Bernard shares his backstory of how he accidentally became a chef, what brought him to the Peninsula, his career highlights, and what we can look forward to on the winter menu. SSCBC is blessed to have a chef of Bernard’s calibre at the helm. Back to the water, Nigel Abbott long time SSCBC member, former Club Captain, and couta boat sailor talks to Mark about his love of sailing (that began thanks to skipping Sunday school) and the world travels and adventures it has afforded him, including being part of the America’s Cup team. And last but definitely not least Hamish Blake shares his tales of travel, podcasting, his sailing ambitions and life on Lego Masters all in his trademark convivial style.

Episode 3: From Sorrento to New York.

This week Shooting the Breeze has an international feel as our host Mark Klemens covers conversations spanning the globe. Mark talks with our Training Manager David White about growing up in Ireland and finding his love of sailing there, then sailing the world before anchoring at SSCBC. The conversation then moves to new Club member Chris Thomas whose family have lived all over the world due to Chris’s advertising career and his daughter’s pro golfing career. After living in the UK, Singapore, the Middle East, Africa and America, Chris and his family are now based at St Andrew’s Beach where they have the best of both sailing and golf. Chris has his sights set on mastering sailing his Wasp with the help of younger Club members. The final interview is direct from New York with SSCBC family members Emily Yarwood and her husband Andrew Penman who celebrated their wedding on the Western Lawn in February this year before returning to what would become an epicentre of the Corona virus. Emily and Andrew give us a first hand account of life in New York in these unsettling times.
